Specialist Car Valuations

Thanks for visiting Specialist Car Valuations UK, run by John Glynn. My wide-ranging motor trade background stretches back over thirty years and includes more than twenty years of professional valuation experience. This began with ten years as a Valuations Editor with the famous Glass’s Guide, where I maintained and developed several ground-breaking products including the first ‘We Buy Any Car’ valuations database.

I’ve been providing independent insurance and market valuations to classic car owners and insurers since 2000. I also work with UK solicitors and legal professionals, preparing Expert Witness valuation reports to CPR Part 35 for Court use. Popular valuation services include Single Joint Expert reports to FPR Part 25 for the Family Court, probate valuations, HMRC NOVA valuations and more.

My motor trade career began in 1986 and it has since run the full breadth of this fascinating industry. I have bought, sold and valued everything from early classic cars to vintage motorcycles, racing cars, huge American motorhomes and all sorts in between. Every day is an adventure and my fascination with all things automotive remains undiminished.

Best known for my Classic Motorcycle Valuations and Classic Porsche Valuations, my experience covers the full breadth of the motor industry and I consult on valuations for all types of vehicles. This site is aimed at users who need specific assistance with a valuation issue or question that is not covered by generic valuation sources.

Regardless of complexity, I am happy to deliver an independent, expert opinion based on decades of professional valuation experience.

I do not advertise my services. All of my work is for repeat customers or by word-of-mouth recommendation. I am always happy to discuss one-off projects or longer term work with new clients.


My bespoke valuation service is charged at a reasonable hourly rate. I can usually provide estimates in advance for Single Joint Expert reports. More complex questions in Expert Witness cases may require detailed research and a range of input across several stages, which is difficult to estimate. Travel and expenses are charged at cost or to HMRC rates in addition to the hourly rate.

Contact me to discuss my services. I work with absolute discretion and your privacy is assured.

My Valuation Expertise

My motor trade experience stretches back more than thirty years, including a decade spent as Valuations Editor for the famous Glass’s Guide to Older Cars & Modern Classics and as Consumer Valuations Editor with UK used car trade price bible, Glass’s Guide. My professional valuations experience includes creation of the original ‘WeBuyAnyCar’ valuation algorithms, which were extensively adopted by car manufacturers.

I am the independent valuations consultant that insurers and car dealers come to when they end up in a mess! As a former consumer journalist with Autocar and MSN, I remain a regular contributor to the specialist motoring press, including a monthly column in BMW Car magazine. Nowadays, my workload mainly consists of valuation consultations across a network of specialist websites.

I am an enthusiast, collector and an experienced classic car dealer. My personal collection hovers around ten classic cars and a similar number of motorcycles. I am happy to help source individual cars and also to assist with disposing of cars at rates agreed up front.
